W&L PLACES FOUR ON ALL-STATE WOMEN'S SOCCER TEAM
FERRUM, Va. -- The Virginia Sports Information Director's
Association (VaSID) announced its College Division All-State Women's Soccer
team on Friday afternoon and Washington and Lee had four players honored.
Seniors Meghan Hayde (Massapequa, N.Y./St. Anthony) and
Fontaine Marcoux (Washington, D.C./Potomac), junior Kelley Zagol (Berwyn,
Pa./Conestoga) and sophomore Kerry Giblin (Ho-Ho-Kus, N.J./Northern Highland
Regional) were all members of the 12-player first team.
Julie Green of Virginia Wesleyan and Ellie Lind of Eastern
Mennonite were selected Co-Players of the Year, while the Marlins' Jeff
Bowers was picked as the Coach of the Year.
A defender, Hayde adds the all-state honor to First Team
All-ODAC and Second Team All-South Region accolades in 2003. She was a
member of a Washington and Lee defense which posted program records for
goals-against average (0.49) and shutouts (11).
Marcoux, a forward, was a First Team All-ODAC and Second
Team All-South Region selection this season as well. She tallied 23 points
on seven goals and a team-best nine assists. She ends her career as the
program's all-time leader for assists in a season (12) and career (36),
and ranks second all-time for career points (110).
A defender, Zagol has become the most decorated women's
soccer player in school history. A First Team All-ODAC selection this
season, she is a two-time First Team All-South Region honoree and W&L's
first All-America women's soccer player. She earned Second Team All-America
accolades this season after scoring nine points on four goals and one
assist while helping the Generals' defense to its' record-breaking season.
A midfielder, Giblin earned First Team All-ODAC honors this
season. She finished tied for third on the team in scoring with 16 points
on eight goals.

and a 9-1-1 mark in the ODAC. The Generals won their second-straight ODAC
title and advanced to the NCAA South Region championship match for the
first time in school history.
